I would never set foot on that thing. I couldn't tell from the video and it may be a silly question but would the "airtrain" or "traincraft" or whatever it is be piloted by actual trained pilots or would they do away with traditional pilots and allow some lesser trained, non-licensed people who are just taught how to work some basic controls operate it? What if the tether detaches or what if due to an unforseen circumstances the operator needs to detach the tether? I just wouldn't be comfortable riding on that thing when there is no person with the experience, skill and instinct to maneuver the craft in response to an emergency. I'm sure the concept would develop over time but the thought of this for me at this time is absolutely not.
